AC4's Guitarist Karl Backman Announces New Band The T-55's

AC4 is taking a long break, but will probably be back for a short reunion tour sometime next year. The songs originally written by guitarist Karl Backman for a third AC4 album are now part of the live set of his new band, The T-55's. The T-55's is Karl's brand new hardcore punk band, with brand new members. If you liked the music and lyrics on AC4's "Burn the World" LP this is the continuation of that.

The first 7" is being recorded next week at Parasit Studios, the home of all AC4 recordings. The new band formed a few weeks ago and consists of Lisa Linder vocals, Karl Backman guitar, Erik Klingvall bass and Elias Jonsson drums. They played their debut gig at a benefit show for paperless refugees at Verket, Umeå, on September 7, 2013.

Live videos from the band's first gig at Umeå's Verket are up on YouTube: Shut Your Face, We Gotta Kill, Cancer Kiss, and Yadana Pipeline.
